Water Testing Missouri

Water testing in Missouri involves various procedures that are performed to analyze the quality of water. Every day, millions of water quality tests are carried out to fulfill regulatory requirements and to maintain safety. Without these tests, clean water may not be clean enough for humans to drink off the tap. Testing also makes sure that pollutants do not contaminate any clean water source such as an irrigation supply for a farm. Water testing in Missouri is important for our health and the environment.

Water testing in Missouri may be performed to evaluate ambient or environmental water quality, or the ability of a surface water body to support aquatic life as an ecosystem. When rainwater runoff makes its way to bodies of water untreated, they may collect various pollutants along the way. Water testing in Missouri protects the organisms and habitats that live underwater by ensuring that the levels of pollutants that are discharged into these bodies of water are kept to a minimum.

Other Reasons for Water Testing in Missouri

Aside from environmental monitoring and testing freshwater environmental quality parameters, water testing in Missouri is also performed to check the characteristics of polluted water or wastewater. Domestic sewage or industrial waste is tested before treatment and/or after treatment to ensure that treatment procedures are effective. The environmental chemistry and wastewater quality indicators can indicate whether a treatment method is effective enough to produce water that is safe for discharge.

The quality of raw water is also one of the goals of water testing in Missouri. The characteristics of a water source prior to treatment for domestic consumption should be checked to make sure that water-borne diseases are not contracted by humans through drinking water. Bacteriological water testing in Missouri, including specific tests such as turbidity and hard water are necessary to ensure the safety of purified water consumed in our homes.
